ZURICH, SWITZERLAND—Littler, the world’s largest employment and labour law practice representing management, has opened an office in Zurich, Switzerland. The office will be led by Dr. Ueli Sommer, who joined the firm as a partner, and will operate under the name Littler | LEL Lawyers.

The expansion into Switzerland follows the opening of a new office in Denmark last month and brings Littler’s total European presence to 29 offices in 14 countries. Littler’s global platform now consists of more than 1,700 attorneys practicing across over 100 offices and 28 countries.

Before starting his boutique firm LEL Lawyers and founding Littler | LEL Lawyers, Dr. Sommer practiced for more than 20 years at Walder Wyss – a large general practice firm in Switzerland – where he founded and chaired the employment law practice. He counsels employers on a range of issues, including the working environment and industrial injuries, workforce restructurings, employment-related agreements and transactions, compensation schemes, and immigration and choice of domicile matters.
